Introduction

Discuss The Role Of Feedback In The Learning Of Skills "Discuss the role of feedback in the learning of skill" The role of feedback is very important in the learning of skills. Feedback also plays an important role in guidance as they are very much associated with each other.

This type of feedback is effective as you can progress and learn but sometimes too much feedback can de-motivate a performer even though it is a form of creative criticism. This type of feedback is critical to experts if they want to fine-tune their techniques for example a trampoline performer may perform a backwards somersault with a pike.

Overall the feedback has a big impact in learning of new skills, it boosts the confidence of youngsters and also motivates them. Feedback also helps athletes to enhance their performance as when given feedback they will be able to identify where they went wrong and how to improve it. ...read more.
